The time for Lent Madness preparedness has begun! Behold the competition brackets on the windows of the Narthex and partake of the small booklets that describe the lives of each saint in the running for the Golden Halo this year so you’re ready for voting. Lent Madness was created as a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the saints. Starting on the February 18th, first day of Lent, you can go to either www.lentmadness.org or www.facebook.com/lentmadness and vote between two saints.  By Easter only one saint will remain and will be crowned with the Golden Halo, along with one parishioner of St. Gabriel’s who chooses the winning saint correctly.
